Children's Author Launches Moonling Adventure on December's New Moon


On the new moon, December 14, we will be launching Houston-based author, Diann Floyd Boehm's fifth children's book (the fourth in the Little Girl in the Moon series), Moonling Adventures-The Serengeti.

"In this adventure, exciting things are happening in Tycho Town," said Diann. "When I do classroom visits, so many kids ask me, 'Isn't there a Little Boy in the Moon?' So, in this book, we introduce the Little Girl in the Moon's best friend, the Little Boy in the Moon, and their smart Moonling dogs, Shadow and Lola." 

Moonling Adventures-The Serengeti is the first Moonling Adventure and the second time that Diann has teamed up with her daughter, Katherine Louise Boehm, to create the illustrations and design for her books. 

Diann hopes that the book will inspire young and old to visit their nearest observtory and enjoy the wonders of space and Earth's beauty.

The author will be planning several launch celebrations in the New Year so visit her website and sign up for her newsletter for updates. We will also feature Diann on the next Author Journey, presented by OC Publishing, on launch day, December 14, at 5 p.m. Atlantic time. Join us live on the OC Publishing Facebook page and enter the draw for a chance to win a 3-book set of The Little Girl in the Moon.  

Moonling Adventures-The Serengeti, is available now for pre-order on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Author, Diann Floyd Boehm

Adverbs & Cliches in a Nutshell - Guest Post by Jessica Bell

Too many adverbs and clichés in your writing? I've got just the fix for you. by Jessica Bell Writers constantly have rules thrown at them left, right, and center. Show, don’t tell! Stop using so many dialogue tags! More sensory detail! More tension! Speed up the pace! Yada yada yada ... it can become overwhelming, yes? I used to feel overwhelmed by it all too. In fact, I still do sometimes. It’s hard enough to get the words on the page, let alone consider how to put them there. In Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird , she says that in order not to be overwhelmed, a writer needs to focus on short assignments. She refers to the one-inch picture frame on her desk and how that little picture frame reminds her to focus on bite-sized pieces of the whole story.

If writers focus on one aspect of the craft at a time, t
